IT Architecture

IT and business focus

Even the best code lines are no better than the overall solution they need to be to create a unified software solution. IT architecture has, therefore, become an increasingly important area for many companies, as IT plays a greater and bigger role when processes are digitised and automated. It requires somebody to have an excellent overview and focus on the issues that IT development needs to solve and define and document how the interplay takes place between independent systems. An IT architect is the link between the business's vision and the IT department's ability. In short, IT architecture is about how to get the most value from IT functionality at the right speed to the lowest possible amount of money.

IT Landscapes

IT architects work with a few tasks, the overall purpose of which is to make the possibilities within IT and business development aspirations coherent. Parallel to building architects is not random. The IT architect focuses on creating solutions that solve the business's IT needs, just as a building architect solves the needs of families and companies for a home or workplace.

Understanding Business

Novicell's IT Architects act as consultants on a number of our solutions. For example, when a data warehouse is to be established for a business intelligence solution or when an enterprise E-Commerce platform is to be created based on business needs and built with the company's existing business critical software systems. IT architects are an excellent resource for an IT project because they take an overall perspective on the issue but at the same time possess extensive knowledge of the individual systems. This unique insight, for example, enables them to create a well-functioning solution that can be established based on a minimal setup that can scale and expand when desired. They understand that not all problems must be solved by building a space rocket.
